Community mission

Is this some kind of cutting hedge technology?

Nope! Just a clickbait title. It was old fashioned scythes and loppers again for the crew of 7 chilly volunteers on Saturday morning.

This week we welcomed Katie & Nathaniel to Goodgym! They got stuck right in with true goodgymer spirit, as Katie teamed up with Matt, Jason, and Russ to lop out brambles in the southern section of the Northern Slopes (in South Bristol).

Nat joined Sarah and I with scything down weeds along pathways, as these will start to snap at passers by if we don't keep on top of it!

We're starting to see patches of wildflowers come through in areas that was once a mess of brambles, and I expect that we'll see a lot more pop up soon. I'll list the next venture (Sat April 24th) on the website this week as there's plenty more to be done here.

Thanks for coming along everyone, and to Russ for taking photos. Extra special thanks to our hard working newcomers! Hope to see you on a community mission again soon. :)
